that occurred at sandy hook elementary school, the cities, states and now president of looking for ways to stem violence what. what took place in connecticut was not the only reason i began working on this legislation. oftentimes it takes a national tragedy to create significant among them and political pressure around the issue of gun violence. but, what is getting missed in these debates is that the reality is that these tragedies associated with gun violence take place every single day in our neighborhoods all across the country. i know all too well what this tragedy looks like. i experienced it every time every time i get a phone call in the middle of the night for the police department alerting me of another violent crime are shooting. families as they grieve. i experience it every time i go to san francisco general hospital to console the victims of gun violence, last year a victim as young as five years old. we continue to address the causes and impact of this senseless gun violence. increasingly involves young adults under the age of 25; often related to disputes over turf and
not prompt action -- at least presidential action like sandy hook has. will sandy hook also prompt action in congress? >> i think so. yes, it will. but first i have to say again, what a powerful statement. the poem that he wrote for this occasion, and i thought he and president obama got together ahead of time and talked about this togetherness, and all of us americans are in this together. and here is a young man, cuban american, openly gay man, that really said something too, plus the power of his words. but to sandy hook this was the slaughter of the innocents. and i think that's what really shocked us and shocked the president. these were little angels. the purest of the pure, and as the president said and i was at the white house when he announced his proposals. this is our number 1 responsibility as a people is to protect our children, and this is how we will be judged is what he said. and i believe this congress will act, maybe not everything we want them to do but we'll see some action not just talk on gun violence this year. >> jennifer: christine my guess is
coaster into the ocean. >> no! that was sandy. >> my ex-wife sandy? >> no, all right! >> sometimes i feel like i'm the second hand correspondent here. >> the second hand correspondent. we're working on you. >> i know. this is exciting show. we're happy to be here. >> two days in a row we're doing. this. >> i love the live show, the crowds, it's amazing. >> still ahead on "way too early," why are you awake? your inaugural sweets, e-mails and texts are next on "morning joe" minutes away. you're dripping. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office.
. and nothing happened. and so when sandy hook happened, to me was-- it had to be a tipping point. you couldn't now have, after aurora, a few months before, 20 young children blown to pieces with three to 11 bullets each from the same weapon that had been used in aurora and not do something as a civilized humain society. and what brought it really to vogue for me, sandy hook, was it was almost identical to what happened in a school in scott rant in the mid-90s where a deranged man had taken guns spy school and killed 16 children. i never covered a more awful story in terms of the gut-wretching images of these poor parents sprinting to the school. i'm a father of four kids. like all parents, i drop my kids off at school and you hand them over and you expect to get them back. and it was just awful. and it was exactly the same, watching sandy hook pim turned on cnn and there were these parents racing to the school, the same terror in their faces. and i thought, this-- this doesn't look right. they were saying one person had been killed. parents don't react like that if they think that's what's h
three weeks. one was on sandy, the other was on raising taxes. in both cases obama had a bipartisan majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to f
events. sunday as health issues sandy one to find the diagnosis or prognosis you can find health-related policy. my hope is that people will attend to different points of view. number two, the larger information provides opportunities when you accidentally bumped into relevant information. >> bruce williams at the university of virginia media studies program we went to graduate school together bruce and i have been working on this with the first discussion to write something on this topic 20 years ago when he noticed the changes. >> host: of what are you most excited of news dissemination? >> it is the opportunity for voices outside the media agenda to be able to be heard. the greatest most recent example is what role it plays is the era of spring. no doubt that was generated by years of concern of political freedom, economic concern that the ability for the spread is the direct result of the ability of people of mobile technology to share ideas and thoughts city going journalists had don't access there was information coming that juror attention to issues. that happens all the t
together around hurricane sandy. we've seen that in the new york, new jersey, connecticut area. ways in which this country is now ready for a conversation on violence and gun control based on what happened in newtown, connecticut, and of course when the president made his remarks about newtown he not only included newtown, but he also included the streets of chicago and so there is, there are these different packets of hope, even in the midst of difficulty that a number of our students at howard university and other people that i work with are latching on to at this time. >> i would also say that one of the things that we are learning is what we would need to do as a country in the face of natural societal resistance to change and that there is, there are hard lessons to be learned about how to lead in times of polarization which are different than in times when we, when the country is more naturally coming together and so those require different leadership skills, different spiritual skills, different levels of truth telling. >> i wanted to pick up on something that you said, profes
used by the civil rights leader sandy will also plays his hand on a bible once used by a bleak and. 800,000 people are expected to pack the national mall. >> what we are doing is celebrating each other and celebrating this incredible nation that we call home. >> the president and vice president along with their families will begin the day by attending church at st. john's across from the white house, a tradition. the swearing-in is followed by the big parade and the inaugural ball. security is tight. 13,000 military and law- enforcement personnel will watch over the proceedings. >> protecting an event this large with this many venues and this number of people coming requires a lot of coordination and organization. >> mr. obama and the first lady overnight with supporters at inaugural reception showed off their love. president>> i love her bangs. she looks good. >> it has been a thrill to watch this handsome, charming individual grow into the man and the president who he is. today he will reach out to some of the people voted against him and call on washington to come to common ground. >
the horrific mass murder of children and faculty at sandy hook elementary in connecticut there were many pledges of thoughtful and thorough efforts to prevent such atrocities. supposedly, everything would be on the table, not just access to firearms by criminals or mentally deranged people, but the mental health care system shall the role of violence in hollywood television and video games. and it was also going to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be sa

and in new york and new jersey who fought to get the money after hurricane sandy that everybody else gets water blinking, they are all for this now too. this is the point made in the speech, like the last line, the reputation about paul ryan, this was about hurricane sandy, and -- gerri: how? this was green energy he was talking about. his commitment -- >> talking about climate change. gerri: a commitment to rid of climate change. >> one of the most ridiculous passages in the speech saying the founding ideals have no meaning unless we fight climate change which would be major news to thomas jefferson, it was a laughable passage. gerri: justin, last word. >> yeah, if president obama's worried and concerned about the future of our children, then he will do something and take dramatic action, use the political capital gained to do something about about the 16 trillion of debt sitting as a yolk of oppression on our future of our children's futures. gerri: thanks so much for coming on tonight. really appreciate the time. great conversation. thank you. and be sure to watch complete inaugural co

in the last week or two with the sandy relief passing and also the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, it really, those things had more democratic votes than republicans, and a lot of sensitive, you know, that happens to john boehner too many times his speakership could be in trouble. so my guess is it will come from the senate, but you've got zoe meeting quietly with a republican from florida talking about details they can bring back to their colleagues. i think actually this is one of these issues where people in both houses are going to want to take credit for being outfront on this issue. i think you're going to see a spate of bills coming forward. >> scott, this is a hot issue. lots of legislators as you mentioned are jumping on the bandwag bandwagon. the lawmakers you talked to in washington, how hopeful are they there will be a bipartisan deal reached this time around? immigration has been attempted before and it's failed. >> i think there is a lot of hope. as i said, the stars kind of are aligning on this, not only do you have republicans willing to come to the table and talk seriously a

that many of these issues ochered. they occur here in a different way after hurricane sandy i paid very close attention to the news. you saw a lot of the same thing this. with in the wake of the storm there would be a wave of panic and society would break down and mob mentality would break down. disaster relief officials were looking for any sign they could find with society breaking down with those voters and usually blowing it out of proportion there were isolated incidents but it was not take deal but it had major ramifications but talk about in the said nora libyans -- citizens of new orleans getting shot because the police assumed they were stealing. it would be nice if there was a period of reflection for disaster relief going forward with the haitian earthquake hit could have been implemented but it is no surprise it did not take place before but it is never too late and a period of reflection now would be a good time. >> three questions. number one, what do you think of the current president? what you think should have happened to those who returned to haiti? what about raw eart
